Design Philosophy: Customized, Not Formulaic

We believe that in creating a printed journal that will become a cherished memento, there is no one magic design formula that works for all projects. Our goal with JournalDesign is to provide great book design that is customized to reflect the personality of the author and complement the message of the text. We intentionally don’t create standard “cookie-cutter” cover templates, but design a unique cover specifically for each customer. Interior pages are designed for readability and to present a polished typographic finish to your words.

All books are custom designed with a full-color wraparound cover and can be designed in paperback, traditional hardcover with a dustjacket, or casewrap hardbound. Interior pages are black and white. Full-color design is also available at an additional charge. Other extra options include adding photos to the narrative.
